and democratic attorney general. one of our two u.s. senators was an independent, elected twice. an independent missed winning the governorship by 15,000 votes over a million passed in 1973. we were the ticket splitting capital of america. we have cents settled back into partisan voting with the rest of america. this is a very polarized era. having said that, when you have close elections you still have a band of voters who will mix and match on the ballot, either because they want to mix and match or they are simply reacting to the individual candidates. in the case of romney and kaine, i have personally been in situations where straw votes were taken among large groups and you generally find you have 3, 4, 5% of the romney boaters picking tim kane for various reasons. some of these romney voters are more moderate republicans and the like tim kane better than his opponent. are there similar voters for obama and george allen? i am sure there are. i never met one of them. but i will say this -- george allen, despite what happened in 2006, he has won from time to time in running for statewide off

, because the u.s. doesn't talk to their governing body, so she'll go to a different territory not contiguous with where the fighting is. as long as we're talking about confusing things, yes, the west bank is east of the other place we're talking about. there it is. it's israel first and then the palestinian authority. where after that? to be part of the international negotiations that are happening on this cease fire in this critical part of the world? she's going to cairo, to egypt because everybody is counting on them. they are indispensable. the president is finishing his trip in the far east and he's kept up his schedule of public events and appearances there but he's been doing some diplomacy personally. "the new york times" reporting that the president spent last night up until 2:30 in the morning making one-on-one direct phone calls with the israeli prime minister and also not the head of hamas, not the palestinian authority, but the president of egypt, which for a generation was our ally in the region, even though it was a creepy and repressive dictatorship. now that c
the biggest impact in the u.s.? >> one of the most powerful campaigns was the trayvon martin case. a 17-year-old african-american, killed in florida, tragically. two weeks after the incident, there was no media coverage of all. a private injustice. the parents start a petition, and then it goes viral. the importance is not just the individual acts of arresting his killer in prosecuting him, but the public. the result, the awareness of the tragic situation of young african-americans not being treated fairly in the justice system or the "stand your ground" laws, where you can almost impunitively shoot someone. that is some of the really exciting things we see. >> in trayvon martin's case, clearly there was an impact, but they were not waiting. they were in there pretty soon, on the case. what i want to ask you -- do you find a difference in the way that companies -- you have a lot of petitions aimed at companies that do specific things. obviously, some have had more political implications. is there a difference in response between business institutions and political institutions? >> politician

bring people together. i won't just represent one party. i will represent one nation. [ chanting "u.s.a." ] throughout this campaign, using every argument he could think of, president obama has tried to convince you that these last four years have been a success. and so his plan for the next four years is to take all the ideas from his first time, the stimulus, borrowing, obamacare, all the rest and do them over again. he calls that plan forward. i call it forewarned. the same course we've been on will not lead to a better destination. the same path means $20 trillion in debt, it means crippling unemployment, depressed take-home values and devastated military. unless we change course, we could be looking at another recession. in his closing argument just this last week, president obama asked his supporters to vote for revenge. for revenge. instead i ask the american people to vote for love of country.

a chance to turn the u.s. around and i believe he is genuine. thank you. host: the next caller from new york on the democratic line. caller: thanks for taking my call. that last call was interesting to me because it seems romney's solution is a big huge tax cut for the wealthy in this country. president obama came in with the bush recession and he's put the stimulus in place and he has put in many other policies that have helped this country stabilize and created 5 million jobs. and what will mitt romney do? cut taxes. that's not a solution. mitt romney has no credibility on domestic policy or international policy. if you're solution for everything that ails us is tax cuts, that's not going to work. look at the bush tax cuts from 04. in the debate, he agreed with president obama on 95% of everything and when he tried to get president obama on libya, he failed. he has no credibility. he will say anything to win and i think that's why president obama will prevail on november 7 because he deserves reelection. he's a great president. host: we can see mitt romney talking to supporters there

you know he wasn't the first? in fact, four u.s. presidents have been elected to office without winning the popular votes all in tight races like the one decide this had week, could it all happen again? presidential historian joins us with perspective, good morning to you, nick. >> good morning, gretchen. >> this just happened 12 years ago and many people have been speculating that president obama might win electorally, but mitt romney might win the popular vote. how do you see it? >> well, it's sort of becoming a trend as you mentioned, it happened 12 years ago and three other times in history and it could very well happen again. we see that mitt romney in a lot of the polls is leading, and we've seen other polls, obama is leading and depends where the electoral college, those eight swing states that people are talking about, ohio, new hampshire, virginia, others, depends what happens in those states. amazingly enough this election has turned into an election for about eight states. >> gretchen: and some people are upset about that and gins up the discussion, whether or not the
is in his job as u.s. senator. [applause] but more important than that i'm here as a mom and a citizen who is very concerned about the future for our kids and for our country. and i know and have come to see that mitt romney is the right candidate for us for president. he is the man with the record. [applause] . he is, right. mitt romney is the man with the record, the experience and the character to begin to turn things around, to begin to change things in wash wark, to break the gridlock abdomen make the change that is we need to get our country back on track so we all need to do everything that we can to be sure that he is elected as the next president of the united states. and what i like to think today is that we have five more days to avoid four more years. [applause] so it's just great to be here with all of you. it's great to feel this energy in ohio. it's going to be close but we are headed in the right direction. it's my pleasure to introduce a friend of mine and that is our special guest. you all know her. you all know she's our ohio born and bread. she went to ohio state here.
the u.s. dollar is a very simple vote. the u.s. dollar's been up six of the last seven weeks. at the same time, you've seen calamity in some commodity prices. gold starting to break down. if romney were to win, the first thing i think happens is more of the same which would imply ben bernanke removed from his seat, gold would be under a serious amount of duress, and you'd start to really have to bake in whether it's hubbard or taylor at the fed, a whole host of issues could come into the bond market -- >> that's your romney, clinton, king dollar scenario, if i may. >> yeah. both reagan and clinton were good for the dollar. i think romney, certainly in the intermediate term, would be seen as a bullish thing for the dollar as well. that could get gas prices in the end, i think that's good for the country, good for consumption. >> wow, great stuff. thank you ever so much. >>> it's election eve. who's going to be the victor? obama or romney? we keep asking this question. predictions up next. please stay right here. >>> president obama will win tomorrow night for two reasons. firs

synonym for victory, a route. yes. republicans gained in the u.s. senate and took a whopping margin in the house of representatives. the biggest practical effect of the 2012 elections was the states. republicans taking control of the legislatures. states went deep red in their state houses and legislatures and the result was conservative law making in those states. ultimately the states were where republicans took over governing in the most measurable way. it is becoming clear that democrats bounce back in the places that they behave badly. in new hampshire, voters flipped the new hampshire house from republican control to democratic control. the same with the state house in oregon. same in the swing state of colorado. it didn't back barack obama for president. they gave democrats control of the house. it now looks that the democrats are going to control the new york state senate. it is not a done deal yet, but that is how it looks. in maine, voters returned both the house and state senate to the democrats. how psyched is republican governor paul lepaige that he was not on that ball
old, i just became a u.s. citizen this year and must say i was so proud to have the privilege to vote. i started crying as i was walking away from the polls. just whoever whelmed with emotions. #voteordie. and speaking of the youth vote, despite the fact that unemployment for those between 18 and 29 was up 12% in the month of october, by 61% of young voters still favor president obama. there was some concern about an enthusiasm gap because in 2008, 78% of young people said they were very enthusiastic about the president but only 48% said so this time around. so it will be very interesting to see if they actually turned out. >> actually go and vote. >> right. >> that is the big question. they turned out at about the same rate as those four years ago. josh elliott. you have people gathering around. >> the anticipation is starting to build, people milling about and seeing on the giant screen surrounding us here in times square turning it into a virtual amphitheater. the votes coming in. as we project states, the excitement starting to build and i want to bring in first-time voters. we ar

, today congress will hold its first formal inquiry on the deadly raid on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that left four americans dead including ambassador chris stevens. general david petraeus who was scheduled to testify today before he resigned now will testify tomorrow. what he learned from his own independent investigation into the benghazi attack. meanwhile, republican senators from the armed services committee including john mccain and lindsey graham are now calling for a, quote, watergate-style investigation into the libya raid and the obama administration's response to it. they also said they would try to block any attempt to nominate susan rice as the next secretary of state, describing her as unqualified for the job after she originally characterized the terror attack as a protest gone wrong. she went on the sunday shows including "meet the press" a couple days after the attack and said that. president obama in his news conference yesterday fired back at senators mccain and graham. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented th
decide who the president was, but the u.s. senate would vote on who the vice president was. that means the most likely outcome under this scenario is a romney/biden scenario. >> another scenario if ohio is too close to call. >> here's the problem with ohio. they have a new law that says provisional ballots, and these are ballots that are questioned there, maybe somebody didn't bring an i.d., maybe a signature is off, they will let you vote, but you get put in a separate stack. they wouldn't even start counting them until november 17th. today is still november 6th. so in 11 days, let's say the margin is less than 50,000, there's likely to be over 200,000 provisional ballots cast in ohio. they wouldn't start counting those until 11 days. . they wouldn't start counting until then. it would make 2000 feel like a flakback for people. >> that brings us to our final nightmare scenario and that's if florida is too close to call. what's changed since then and how do you see it playing out? >> two things there. if the margin is less than 50,000 votes and obama on the short end, democrats believe
and 47 republicans. one-third of the u.s. senate is up for election tonight. that's 33 seats. 23 democratic and ten republican. in order for the republicans to take control of the senate, they would need to win four seats. that bat logical take place in about a dozen states from places like connecticut and massachusetts out east to nevada and arizona out west. cbs news considers six of these states true tossups. that's massachusetts, connecticut, virginia, wisconsin, north dakota, and montana. republicans have what they're calling their big four. that's montana, north dakota, nebraska and wisconsin. republicans tell us in order for them to win the senate they have to win the majority of the big four. the polls have closed. we're going to take a closer look in virginia where the polls have closed at the senate race there. there's a contest between two former popular governors. you have republican george allen, the former u.s. senator from that state and democrat tim kaine, the former head of the democratic national committee. this is a very tight race. it's also the most expensive
, or, or, or. it was stuff like this. this is the u.s. state department's annual report on global terrorism in 2003. every year they would put together a report like this detailing accidents of terrorism around the world. and the next report after this one, showed that despite the bush administration's claims that we were winning the war on terror, despite the constant claims, the number of terrorist attacks had gone up to its highest level in the two decades the state department had been publishing this report. what was the bush administration's solution to that problem? the solution was to stop publishing the report. the bush administration just eliminated that annual report once it included something very politically inconvenient. the bush administration had a habit of doing this. if you don't like the data, get rid of the data. earlier they were face wd a new report from their own education department showing that charter school kids were falling behind public school kids. how do you deal with your own administration's data on underperforming charter schools? you cut back on t
. there is some truth to what mike believes. dennis miller has a similar take coming up. but the truth is the u.s.a. is a rapidly changing country. and the republic party has to rethink strategy. in hindsight, senator marco rubio would have been the best choice to run with mitt romney. it's not a knock on congressman paul ryan he did very well. it's just that the g.o.p. knees to send a powerful signal to g.o.p. voters that respect them. they cast approximately 11 million ballots yesterday. obama beat romney by less than 3 million in the popular vote. the good news for the republics is that the pressure is now on president obama and the democrats. if the economy doesn't improve dramatically over the next four years, the democratic party will evaporate. simple as that what is more complicated is the mind set of the american people. as i reported last night during the election coverage about half of all american homes are now receiving some kind of government entitlement. some earned, some not. so any effort to reform or cut back on entitlements is a tough sell. but it's going to have to be done. pr

will result in additional tax revenue into the u.s. treasury. again, it comes down to whether you buy into that theory. the republicans hold that theory and belief in it. the other side of the aisle does not believe in the theory to the extent the republicans do. do you have still made over the ideologies -- do you have a stalemate over the ideologies? those ideologies are going to clash. it could result in gridlock and nothing happened to the debt limit comment. i think it will take us going over the cliff for policy makers and or the american people saying, what the heck is going on? we saw a status quo election. the same players are around the table. they still elected the same officials. something drastic has to push that change. i believe it will be going over the fiscal cliff. nothing really happened after august of last year. that's a weird way of saying that. if we go over the cliff, i do see the markets being adversely impacted. if you have taxes in the mix, that will not sit well with others. i do see some gridlock and revenues on the table in the theory of reducing tax rate
is an afterthought. for us, it is the foundation upon which the middle-class was built and is the key to u.s. success in the 21st century.
